Revised Touareg on the way

Volkswagen has revised its Touareg large SUV and will be giving it its global debut at the upcoming Beijing Motor Show, writes Brian Byrne.

There's a completely new front-end style, and the rear has also been changed. Restyled interior details have also been implemented in the areas of materials, lighting and controls.

All versions will have the 4Motion AWD system, with a switchable off-road programme. An optional 'Terrain Tech package' offers a system for more difficult offroad conditions.

In Europe, the main engine will be a V6 TDI in 204/258/340hp versions. There will also be a V8 TDI with 340hp.
